Earlier this month, we had discussed about an extension for Google Chrome that will help you to automatically copy selected text- Auto Copy. Today, I am going to discuss about the same trick in Firefox.
This is an about:config tweak. To open the preference editor of your browser, direct your cursor to the address bar and type “about:config”. A warning message will appear like this – “This might vide your warranty!”. Ignore the message and enter the editor.
In the filter box, type the following text- “copy”. You will get a preference named clipboard.autocopy. Change the value of that preference from “False” to “True” by double-clicking or right clicking on it. You are done!
I also found a good addon which does the same job. If you think it is risky to edit the preferences you can try this too! – AutoCopy
